Sorrowing of Winds
By Clark Ashton Smith
O WINDS that pass uncomforted
  Through all the peacefulness of spring,
  And tell the trees your sorrowing,
That they must moan till ye are fled!
Think ye the Tyrian distance holds        5
  The crystal of unquestioned sleep?
  That those forgetful purples keep
No veiled, contentious greens and golds?
Half with communicated grief,
  Half that they are not free to pass        10
  With you across the flickering grass,
Mourns each vibrating bough and leaf.
And I, with soul disquieted,
  Shall find within the haunted spring
  No peace, till your strange sorrowing        15
Is down the Tyrian distance fled.
